I am new to this and need to tweak my diet some. I need to loose some weight and have pledged to loose 30# tis year, so far I've lost 10. I try to eat 5-6 small meals daily and have high cholesterol with high triglycerides. I don't' take medication since it hurt my chest and am trying not too. I eat clean and have cut out sugar, I use unbleached AP flour when I cook for my husband and WW flour the rest of the time. We eat a lot of chicken and pork, rarely beef, but when my husband cooks it is fried in a little oil to make a gravy which he eats over white rice and me brown. I try to eat fish at least once a week if not more but I don't know where catfish is on the fatty fish scale. I read food labels and have some idea about nutrition but am having trouble tweaking my diet to lower my cholesterol and weight. If a nutritionist can give me any ideas I will greatly appreciate it.View Thread
